    Personal profile

    Artistic and research interests

    I am Associate Professor of Maritime Technology (Ship Safety) with teaching duties on Principles of Naval Architecture and Ship Dynamics. My research focuses on coupled and multidisciplinary problems. I combine knowedge from advanced ship & safety science, marine hydrodynamics & structures for the prediction of sea loads, safety and performance of ships and offshore structures operating in extreme conditions. On the enabling research front I work on de-risking emerging technologies (e.g. big data analytics, nuclear technology, autonomy etc.) for use in the design and operations of safe and sustainable ships. I am European Engineer, Chartered Engineer, Fellow of the Royal Institution of Naval Architects (UK), Member of the Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers (USA) and the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (UK). I have been a member of the International Ships and Offshore Structures Congress since 2006, serving as member in various committees and chair of committee I.2 on Loads from 2008-2012. Part of my editorial duties involve Associate Editorship of the IMechE Proceedings Part M : Journal of Engineering for the Maritime Environment (ISSN:14750902, Sage Pub. Ltd).
